“We’re good. Love conquers all. I do know that no matter what, we’re a family. We’re not always the best of friends, but we’re a family and we love each other underneath it all,” said Nicki about her label YMCMB. “I know that Wayne and Baby love each other, and I know they’re gonna resolve anything that gotta be resolved. Shout to Young Money. I am Young Money. I ride with Wayne on whatever. But Baby has played such a huge role in my mental stability.”

Earlier in the interview, Nicki talked about The Pinkprint. The “Anaconda” rapper expressed that she created the LP for the love of Hip Hop culture and made it a point to be lyrical on the project.

“We’re giving a lot of people a lot of passes for not being lyrical and for not being nice. I have to be the one to do it. You can’t wait for nobody else to do it,” stated Nicki. “Pop culture follows what we do, and if we okay the bulls**t, they okay the bullsh**t. And they take it to another level.”

The leader of the Barbz goes on to add that she wanted to show Hip Hop fans that she is honored to be an emcee. For Nicki, The Pinkprint is the proudest achievement in her career.

Minaj also revealed Jay Z told her that he was a fan of her tracks “Lookin Ass N***a” and “Chiraq.” She also claimed she has not had sex with anyone in the music industry.
